WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?
For those of you joining in Kemble (you'll most likely be joining riders starting in Bristol) our route takes us immediately into the Cotswold Hills and along a charming lane cut into the hillside. Keeping away from main roads, we'll meander through Jack's Green and Sheepscombe before taking a well-deserved snack break at Prinknash Abbey Park. Our next stop is Gloucester where we’ll congregate at famous Gloucester Cathedral. The final few miles of our route will follow the National Cycle Route between Gloucester and Cheltenham. A combination of cycle tracks and dedicated cycle lanes next to main roads, this stretch is safe and generally quiet. 'll aim to arrive at Wychwood by 5.30pm for (no doubt) a well-deserved celebratory beer!
